Tips for adhering to a dress code and still be absolutely fashion forward? Playing with accessories! As showed above, it’s that splash of bright elevated these outfits. The small clutch and enviable colorblock pumps on Mandy Moore can help you transform from desk to dinner with ease while the roomy orange/red bag looks as good with a T shirt and slouchy jeans for weekends as it is with a blazer and pencil skirt for the office.

In Chinese: 既要遵守办公室的着装要求,又想展现好品味或者给无聊的制服增加些趣味?那就多花些心思在配件上吧!拼色的、有设计感或有趣的小配饰对整体造型的提升会超出你的想象。比如上面这两个造型,去掉这几个红色、橘色的装点就很平乏了。曼迪·摩尔(Mandy Moore)的这个小手包和让人过目不忘的别致包鞋可以让你从办公室到晚上的约会转换得轻松自如。辣妈杰西卡·奥尔芭(Jessica Alba)的这个好看又实用的双色手包在周末时搭配T恤牛仔裤也一样出彩!

Midi skirts and wool shorts are great transitional pieces to keep us warm without the winter heaviness. The graceful vibe of a midi and tailored silhouette of the shorts make them versatile pieces that can be worn from desk to dinner. Here, I love the accessories master Olivia Palermo adds edgy or glamour elements to her ensemble via add-ons  like her enviable shoes, cool sunglasses, and ladylike purse.

In Chinese: 优雅的过膝裙和挺括的羊毛短裤很适合现在这样的过渡时节穿,有保暖功能又没有冬装的厚重感,既能通勤又可以穿去约会。街拍女王Olivia Palermo是善用配件的高手,看看她的这两个造型吧:用优雅的酒红色高跟鞋把一身硬朗的皮装穿出了十足女人味,男孩风的铆钉短靴则给俏皮甜美的波希米亚风装扮注入了恰到好处的酷帅。

Cable Knit Sweater, Two Ways

Happy 2014 everyone! How is your New Year’s Eve? With a little one needs to be nursed around the clock, I opted out of the hoopla and stayed at my warm home with loved ones.

Kick off the first day with two classic, cozy yet fashionable looks. Cable knit sweaters are very nostalgic for me, growing up seeing heavy snow every winter, I can’t live without them. How to update? Play with textures by pairing them with tough leather or flowy chiffon; Also incorporate trendy elements, like the pleats (prepare to see them a lot next spring), skirts in midi length, and punky zips or studs seen on today’s featured fashion experts.

In Chinese: 新年快乐!你的新年前夜是怎么度过的呢?带着襁褓里的宝宝,又赶上纽约气温骤降,我只好选择呆在家里,不过和家人在一起,其乐融融,也很惬意。

今天我选了两个非常经典又不失时尚感的搭配,都是和一件我们很熟悉的单品有关的,那就是人人都离不开的毛衣。这种从小穿到大的衣服怎么穿出潮流感呢?贴士一:混搭不同的材质,把厚重的针织和硬朗的皮革或飘逸的雪纺配在一起;贴士二:引入当季的流行元素,比如百褶裙(明年春夏会很火哦),复古的中长裙,或有庞克风的拉链、铆钉等。
